INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Independent Stationers, a nationwide member-owned business products cooperative, recently announced it has added Alliance Distribution Partners as its newest approved vendor, effective July 1.

Alliance Distribution Partners is a wholesaler of industrial, contractor supply and safety products, offering 200,000 products from vendors that include 3M, WD-40, DeWalt, Snap-on Industrial, Rust-oleum, MCR Safety and many others.

The addition of Alliance continues to broaden the product offering of Independent Stationers members to include safety products, tools, material handling products, paints and lubricants, abrasives and fasteners.

"The opportunity for our members to add value to existing customers as well as attract new business by offering a range of MRO products is an exciting proposition," said Independent Stationers merchandising director Mike Foster.

“The industrial MRO marketplace is highly fragmented, with end-users aggressively looking for dealers that can provide a very broad range of products,” added Alliance president Roger Woodward. "This new partnership, coupled with the strong local relationships and excellent service models of the Independent Stationers members will create exciting new growth opportunities for both our organizations."
